Crossfade Roulette: An EDM Sampler

All words: Toni Tileva

In this column, we cover songs for you to nod your head to in the EDM scene [electronic dance music, not extra dancey music, for those not in the know].

1. Expansion Broadcast Plus Good Mix

Expansion Broadcast Radio has been my all-time favorite radio station, with its consistent [think weekly] delivery of some the freshest, deepest bass music around. A true blessing to the DC edm scene, EXBC Radio’s roster of talent reads like a who’s-who of the DC DJ MVPs [most valuable plate-selectors]. In this installment, Plus Good, aka Ben Black, drops a mind-blowing array of drum’n’bass goodness spanning everything from jungle to liquid. Plus Good and Retrospect are the force behind Medication, a one Thursday a month homage to brilliant bassdom at Cafe Saint Ex. As this mix indicates, this is some smooth medicine; get your fix.

2. Erykah Badu – Love Of My Life (Kaytradamus Remix)

This is an 18+ event. ~~~~ About Jon Dore: Named one of “10 comics to watch” by Variety, Ottawa-born comedian, host and actor Jon Dore is renowned for his offbeat humour and unique bait-and-switch style. Dore is a favourite on the comedy club and festival circuit in Canada and the United States. He has hosted the Just for Laughs Festival Homegrown Comedy Competition on a number of occasions and has enjoyed sold-out runs at the Festival’s Montreal and Toronto locations, at comedy festivals in Halifax, Vancouver, Portland and Washington, DC, and at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. From his humble beginnings as the co-host of the cable talk show Daytime Ottawa (Rogers Television) and the irreverent roving reporter on Canadian Idol (CTV), Dore recently starred in the critically acclaimed ABC-TV series How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life) opposite Sarah Chalke, Elizabeth Perkins and Brad Garrett. Dore is the host of HBO Canada’s Funny as Hell, a series showcasing bold and uncensored comedy from the fastest rising comedians at the Just For Laughs Festival, currently shooting its fourth season. He is the star of his own award-winning ‘mockumentary’ series, The Jon Dore Television Show, documenting his hilarious and outrageous debates on life’s challenges and changes, from weight loss to gender. He also served as co-creator, co-producer and writer on the series, proving he is just as comfortable behind the camera. The series ran for a successful two seasons on IFC and The Comedy Network. Dore starred in the stand-up specials Comedy Central Presents...Jon Dore and Comedy Now! (CTV/The Comedy Network); appeared on a number Comedy Central’s specials including Live At Gotham, CC: Stand-Up: The Bonnaroo Experience and Mash Up; made guest-starring turns on How I Met Your Mother (CBS) and Scare Tactics (Syfy); and was the lead in the CBS pilot My Life As An Experiment. A regular on late night talk shows, Dore has the honor of being the first stand-up to appear on Conan (TBS). Dore's feature film credits include the indie drama Gus opposite Michelle Monaghan (Mission: Impossible III) and the comedy Stag, with Donald Faison (Scrubs) and Eva Amurri (Californication), which picked up two awards - Best Ensemble and Excellence in Filmmaking - at the LA Comedy Film Festival. TV Guide Canada called Dore one of the “rising stars of the future” and Toronto weekly NOW Magazine named him Best Male Stand-up. He is the recipient of four Canadian Comedy Awards including: Best Taped Live Performance (2010) for Just for Laughs; Best Performance by a Male in a Television Show (2009) for The Jon Dore Television Show; Best Writing on a Series (2008) for The Jon Dore Television Show; and Best Stand-up Newcomer (2006). He is also a two-time Gemini nominee (2008 & 2009) for Best Individual Performance in a Comedy Program or Series for The Jon Dore Television Show. ~~~ Thanks to our sponsor: More Bentzen Ball shows available at: Stay informed:

There is Nostradamus, Flosstradamus, and now Montreal’s Kaytradamus. The only commonality is the former portends luscious beats in your future. The lilting piano beat carries this already gorgeous ode to friendship and love to new heights. This is some future-sing you can get behind.

3. Jeru The Damaja – Ya Playin’ Yaself (Cheapshot Remix)

This remix is absolutely mental. DJ Cheapshot from LA brings some serious jaunt to this classic track. Not playing this would be playing yourself!

4. Kito – Sweet Talk

It is impossible to resist this deliciously sweet morsel of dubstep confectionary. Australian born Maaike Lebbing, aka Kito, teamed up with vocalist and friend, Reija Lee and released a 4 track EP, “Sweet Talk” on Diplo’s Mad Decent label. “Sweet Talk” gained a lot of airplay on UK’s BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra, as well as holding second place for a number of weeks in the Dubstep Beatport Chart. You will be sweet talked into hitting the repeat button on this one.

5. Calyx & TeeBee–Pure Gold [feat. Kemo]

“We got serious on the drop.” One can say that again. Calyx and TeeBee, veterans of the drum’n’bass scene, released 2012’s All Or Nothing on Andy C’s Ram Records. A track off this release, Pure Gold delivers as promised.
